Congrats on the debt free!

Seriously, save up and get another Bonney if you want. Of course its something you and your wife should be in complete agreement on. A car is not as important as a good marriage.

I love that Silhouette. I would be so all over that if I had the available funds.
I think what I will probably end up doing will be getting something to make the wife happy, and then get another Bonnie for me, even if it is a project.

Bump - I can relate. My wife and I were just in a similar situation. The 99 you see in my sig was getting old, had a boat load of miles, and needed some repairs. We were both ready to graduate out of the Bonnevilles, but didn't want to spend a lot of money.

Surprising as it may seem, the Ford Crown Victoria/Mercury Grand Marquis got very high reviews by all the notable online reviewers (edmunds, MSN autos, etc.) and are quite affordable. The 2000 Mercury GM in my sig cost us only $6200 and has only 40,000 miles. You'd be hard pressed to find that kind of value anywhere else. Plus, being the same drive train used in taxi cabs, police cruisers, etc. they're very durable! Just like all domestic cars, they depreciate like a rock, but live a long life. According to all the reviews I've read, there'* not one common failure point. And, being a full framed car, they get a 5-star crash rating. Means insuracnce is dirt cheap (full coverage costs us $293 every six months).

I would so love one of those but not sure if the Missus would go for it. I think she wants a small car.
I had a 85 Gm and LOVED it. I actually had a windshield banner that read "Pimppalicious".
Next car was an 87 Aries, and I actuall had "Pimpalicious Jr". on that one.
Some day, when I have aride that'* truly worth, I gonna do
